Actually, there is no reason to use the evaluation version! VirtualBox
has a really neat feature that allows you to use folders on the host
system as "shared folders" on the internal network the virtual machine
It's very easy to set up, mount the usb drive in an easily accessible
folder (one VirtualBox can at least read, writing may not be
required). You can then tell VirtualBox you want to share the folder
as a network share with the virtual machines running.
Check it out, and if you have any problems, feel free to email the
list! It's the second best option to real USB support.
